Cauliflower really is an amazing veggie. From cauliflower wings to taco bowls, it can easily take on any flavor AND achieve so many textures.

Today we are boiling cauliflower in vegan chicken broth, then adding some seasonings and blending it all up to make one of the most delicious and creamy sauces you have ever had.

You will literally want to eat this stuff with a spoon. It is so simple, but so full of flavor.

I suggest serving this up over a big bowl of pasta and calling it a day.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 8 cloves garlic diced
  • 2 heads cauliflower cut in florets
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups vegan chicken broth* or veggie broth
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk unsweetened
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic to the pan and sauté until shallot is tender – approximately 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • Add garlic/shallot mixture, non-dairy milk and 3/4 cup of the cooking liquid to the blender. Blend on high until smooth – working in batches if needed.
  • Pour sauce into a skillet and season with salt & pepper. If the sauce is too thick, add additional cooking liquid.
